As in the LDS Church, and other denominations, there appear to be troublesome factions. It is not easy to deal with these groups.
The new Catholic Pope appears to be different from his predecessors. He is taking on problems and issues that the previous leaders chose to push to the back round.
Give him time.
Rome was not built in a day.

As in the LDS Church........??

There may be some groups that call themselves Latter Day Saints, use the Book of Mormon, ect. but they are not like this Catholic group that is actually a part of the Church headed by the Pope. Thomas Monson does not run out and confir with any so called Mormon or Latter Day Saint groups that are not an official part of the LDS Church headquarted in Salt Lake City. You seem to imply with your post that there are such factions. Am I mistaken?

"As in???? there appears to be". that is no way to approach an itelligent query. You need to investigate from within the borders of your subject. Call for the Missionaries, they will sort out your questions and give you definitive answers. Factions are not witnin the LDS church, they are outside of it. There are however, faction within the Catholic Church because of their lack of a Quorumn of Twelve Apostles and a Prophet to guide it. that all disappeared in the second century of the early church. That my friend, is history.

@ Thornbirds:

Nowhere in the article does it state that this group 'Legion of Christ' is separate from the Vatican. On the contrary, it was approved by a pope and run from within the walls of the Vatican. If the entity known as the Catholic Church wants to remove the stigma that surrounds it, the issues must be dealt with in an honest and open manner. Swiftly and sternly investigate and punish priests who cross the line. Apologize for their inaction and slient support of the Axis powers during WWII. Apologize for the Spanish Inquisition. Be more transparent.

President Munson does not need to deal with those same issues. Any person/groups that decide they don't want to play by the rules are asked to change or leave the LDS church. May God bless you on your journey.
